This book was a great multi-cultural version of Hansel and Gretel! The illustrations were bold and filled all of the pages. It is nice to see a version of a fairy tale that can be relatable to other genres and cultures. As I was reading Hansel and Gretel, I was able to get a great sense of the african culture through the illustrations that were along with the text. This version of the traditional tale is very similar storyline of the original Hansel and Gretel. It has both dark characters and heroes. It was great to see a traditional tale told in a multicultural way. Great pick!
